We like to think we can spot a rebodied Pontiac Fiero when we see one, but we have to admit that this Concept 2000 GT eBay find had us scratching our heads for a bit. According to our research, this unusual car isn't one of two General Motors prototypes produced, as the seller claims, nor is it a prototype Ford, as indicated by a couple images included in the ad. It's actually one of a dozen or so cars built in the 1980s based on the Fiero.

The car has a turbocharged V6 and is street legal in the US, according to the seller, and it has amenities such as air conditioning, cruise control, power steering (something the Fiero never had), power windows and a tilt steering wheel. Furthermore, it only has 16,000 miles on the odometer and was kept in a climate-controlled garage under a car cover, the seller says. It should start right up. The seller also listed it as having a six-speed manual transmission, but an interior photo clearly shows an automatic transmission gear selector.

The Concept 2000 GT no doubt is a rare sight, yet we couldn't help but notice that two more have gone up for sale since July – and one is black.

One Autoblog staffer was able to see the Fiero in the kit car after recognizing the side glass, B-pillar and the Fiero emblem on the steering wheel, but otherwise the Concept 2000 GT kit is a pretty good disguise - even if it's not necessarily to everyone's tastes. To us, it looks more like the car from The Wraith, which was based on the Dodge M4S Turbo Interceptor that was built to be a high-performance Indy pace car for 1981. We'll take one of those instead.

      Love all the **** comments , please send me the pictures of the cars that you designed . I designed this car in 1986 and sold 13 of them in the US and 5 to Japan. Sold the business and the car was never changed or updated over the years . Opinions are like ******** everybody got one. So go out and design yourself a car, make the molds ,sell a bunch, send me a picture and wait for my comments

        Lol...dude can't take anonymous criticism from the global peanut gallery that is the internet. Sorry man, but the planet has spoken and your creation is no longer deemed attractive.

      I can see where the new Stingray got its styling cues from.

      16k miles? Guess the engine is about to fail then.

      Nailed it...this is exactly how cars looked in the 2000s. Lots of fins and louvres, and a front overhang that ends somewhere in the next county. [/sarcasm]

      Autoblog -- you don't have to publish everything you come across. This monstrosity of an abortion has pronounced vents in the hood, presumably to cool the engine that's located in the back. A little editorial discretion, please.

        Cut 'em some slack. It is August after all, and I'm sure they're scrambling to find content b/c there isn't much actual news.

      They didn't even get the fake Fiero wood kits you see on many Fauxerris.

      Concept 2000 GT, huh? The name reminds me of the old Chris Elliott sit-com \"Get A Life\": \"Terror on the Hell Loop 2000\", \"Paperboy 2000\", \"Houseboy 2000\", \"Camping 2000\", \"Neptune 2000\", \"Psychic 2000\", \"Meat Locker 2000\", \"Health Inspector 2000\", \"Girlfriend 2000\", and \"1977 2000\".
